Did I? I recall something quite different ;-) You said you have preliminary
'f.jam' and I suggested that it could use syntax like:

using f : g77 : ... ;
using f : gfortran : ...

I surely never suggested to add fortran support of all the C toolsets.

Yes, that's right approach. Supposing fortran compilers differ in options
(don't know, since never used them), it makes sense to have several fortran
toolset files.

For gfortran/g77, maybe a single toolset file will work if options are the
same, but then I don't know anything about it, so feel free to decide
